The Wilderness Trust, together with Save the Elephants manages the Makuleke Transboundary Elephant Movements project in the far northern Kruger National Park.
On 24 May two children, Perfect Mtileni and Manuel Chauke from Makuleke Village joined Save the Elephants researcher Michelle Henley in the Makuleke Concession (where we operate our Pafuri Walking Trail).
Michelle taught the children various facts about elephants and the children had the opportunity to use the telemetry tracking to locate the elephants with the collars.
Data from collared elephants are being used to monitor the movement of elephants in the Transfrontier Park between Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
Representing Children in the Wilderness, Pafuri staff member Crispen also joined the group as did Leonard Mzamani from the Makuleke Village.
